Football team energized for Saturday

FAYETTEVILLE – The University of Arkansas football team continued its preparations Wednesday inside Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium for Saturday’s game with Ole Miss (3-3, 1-2, SEC). The Razorbacks will play in Fayetteville for the first time in 28 days. UA, ranked 21st in the AP poll, holds a 4-2 (1-2, SEC) record and is 226-105-5 all-time when ranked in the top 25.

Defensive coordinator and secondary coach Willy Robinson expects the squad to continue having an exemplary week of practice with the squad’s return to play in Fayetteville coming this weekend.

"They responded very well yesterday," Coach Robinson said. "They practiced with a lot of energy. They flew around. They executed better today. They’ll get ready to roll."

Coach Robinson outlined what he expects to see from the Rebel offense under head coach Houston Nutt, noting that the Razorbacks will need to stay focused and fresh while on the field.

"It’s fast-paced; massive substitutions," Coach Robinson said. "Tons of personnel groupings; he gets them in and gets them off and in and out of the huddle. The bottom line is we’re going to have to stop the run."

The Razorback-Rebel football game will air on the SEC Network at 11:21 a.m. For more information on UA football, please visit
